Add Disk Cleanup To The Right Click Menu

Keeping your computer running at It's optimal state, Is of the utmost Importance to ensure smooth and hassle-free operations during your day-to-day computational tasks. A part of this equation, Is to keep your PC's hard disk free from clutter, by removing unnecessary files using a native utility named Disk Cleanup. Wouldn't It be great If you could do It via a simple right-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Disk Cleanup to the right-click context menu.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. A typical way of accessing Disk Cleanup Is to open File Explorer, right-click the hard disk that you wish to clean, select Properties and then hit the Disk Cleanup button. The utility will execute as per the Image below.

Under Files to delete, you can then mark the check boxes of files and folders that you wish to clean. To simplify the process, I will demonstrate how to add the Cleanup option to the right-click context menu, as seen In the first Image above. As such, It will provide Instant access to the Disk Cleanup utility.

To achieve this, I'll use a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry and apply the Cleanup option thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:

When you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add Cleanup.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes as shown below.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've now navigated to File Explorer, right-clicked on my OS Drive and as you can see, the Cleanup option has been added to the right-click context menu. Let's click It to make sure It's functional.

Step Four:

Disk Cleanup, will now scan the hard disk to calculate the amount of space to clean up. The process Is pretty quick- around 20 seconds or so.

Step Five:

The Disk Cleanup utility will then Initialize, and you can select the files and folders that you want to clean.

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove the Cleanup option from the right-click context menu, simply double-click the Remove Cleanup.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

The good thing about this Implementation, Is the automated process of adding the entries to the Windows Registry, hence there's very little to no chance of corruption. Moreover, you can reverse the change just as easy as It was to apply.
